Thank Cardinal Burke (petition)

Thank you to Cardinal Burke Can Be Signed Here


Cardinal Raymond Burke, one of the strongest pro-life and pro-family voices in the Catholic Church, has confirmed that the rumors are true: he will soon be moved from his position as the prefect of the Vatican’s Apostolic Signatura.

For the past 6 years, Cardinal Burke has served in this role, heading up the highest court of the Catholic Church. He is now reportedly to be moved to the largely ceremonial position of patron of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.

Among Cardinal Burke’s many actions in defense of the truths of life and family has been his courageous stance in support of canon 915, which states that ministers of communion “must” refuse the Eucharist to public and “obstinate” sinners. The cardinal himself has most frequently advocated the use of this canon in the cases of pro-abortion Catholic politicians.

Most recently, he exerted his influence during the Vatican’s Synod on the Family, publicly decrying efforts by some bishops to hijack the synod to push a radical agenda, and steering the Synod towards a more orthodox conclusion.

The transfer of Cardinal Burke from his Vatican post is undoubtedly a loss to the pro-life and pro-family movement, with his role at the Vatican having helped to amplify the cardinal’s prophetic voice.

However, we are confident that the transfer will do little to silence the cardinal, and that we may look forward to years more of close collaboration with and support for the pro-life and pro-family movement.

We offer this petition to give people an opportunity to express their personal thanks to the cardinal. The names and signatures on this petition will be personally hand-delivered to Cardinal Burke in Rome.

  1. It’s a worthy project but it says nothing about the Cardinal’s bold defiance of the heretics and schismatic moral pariahs’ recent obscenities at the synod and the most important fact of all – he called out the “revolutionary in white,” to his face.

    I’ll sign it but I wanted to enter that point about the petition. It should be much stronger that what is stated.

  2. gpmtrad makes a good point …the Thank You should be re-written to include the important facts about the Cardinal Burke’s defence of Catholic Doctrine against attacks.

  3. Is there a way to send email directly to His Eminence?

  4. I don’t know about email, but the regular mailing address appears to be:

    Address: Palazzo della Cancelleria, Piazza della Cancelleria, 1, 00186 Roma, Italy


    That’s merely an internet-source piece of info, however. How accurate it is is anyone’s guess.

  5. Your Eminence,
    God sees your heart and you have done great things for the church. Even though the enemies of the church can also have high places on this earth, people like you have a higher place because you are faithful and will not change one ounce of the faith to go with a wicked world. Keep going in your good work no matter where you are and those of us who appreciate your stance will be beside you. The greatest charity is to help people get out of sin, not to enable them to continue to sin without repentance. We thank you for emphasizing that point.
